Isvari*s Report (little urgent)

1 week, 2 days ago by Isvari devi dasi in Personal Sadhana Reports

Hare krsna Dear Maharaja,

PAMHO, AGTSP!

All glories to sankirtana of Sri Caitanya!

May your love for Krishna always grow and deepen.

It is amazing how Krishna teaches and guides us. 2 weeks ago you recommended us to hear a SBG class from Srila Prabhupada, and I did this (class of SBG 1.2.6).

Too, I read your offering to SP.and thanks to those 2 events I could understand the importance of to realized Srila Prabhupada. That SP disappears would be a catastrophe for ISKCON, we would be a dead body.

Now I understand in greater depth the vital importance of partnering with SP and of seeking at all costs to be pure and this as you sometimes mention it is not an option is a necessity.

If we do not do SP we will not be able to keep ISKCON devoted to SP. Thank you very much for allowing me to understand this, I do not want to overwhelm you with so many words, more thanks to you I understand the really important and urgent: If I realized SP, he will always be with me and I can share SP with others.

HpS - "Hello. I want you to meet my grandfather!"

Regarding my sadhana, lately I have not been able to get up at 4am. I have felt very tired in part to the excessive use of the computer and I was loaded with activities that exceed my capacity. I am now organizing to do what I can really do.

HpS - Have the same problem, but not so bad that we don't get up.

For now I have left pujari services, I am concentrating on other services among which is preaching and supporting Gandharva das in the tasks he considers I can do.

I finish my rounds even more, I must improve the concentration, it is a fact that if I get up at 4am my concentration will improve.

The last time you came unfortunately for me I could not interview you, I hope this time I come I can do it.

HpS !!! Con el otro mitad de la naranja.

In conclusion, I am very grateful to you. Despite all the problems I feel optimistic. Here in Lima the administrators have many problems and fail to harmonize, when I found out about this, I felt very sad. And thanks to you I understood that Time is short and the disciples of SP will soon leave, if we do not value the disciples of SP and turn our gaze towards him, he will have lost a great valuable opportunity.

All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

All glories to his good disciples that lead us to him!

May Sri Nrsimhadeva always protect you.

with much appreciation and respect

HpS - Brahmanas have to protect and inspire the Administrators.

Questions disturbing me ( little urgent )

1 week, 2 days ago by RiturajMajumder in Personal Sadhana Reports

Hare Krsna gurudev.

Dandavat pranam at your lotus feet.

HpS - ASA --- Lettuce feet. AGTSP..... so so so so nice to hear from you!!

All glories to Srila Prabhupada The founder acharya of ISKCON .

Respected Srila Gurudev H.H. Hanumatpresaka swami Maharaj

Hope you are doing well. I am also OK physically . Sorry for not writing . I had nothing to say and was guilty that i cannot follow the basic standards.

HpS - We are all struggling to come up to the next standard. Feel proud that you made this our that effort.... and got this or that result. Report. Got 55% on the test. 60% was passing. Last exam I got 45%

My mind is always troubling me . I am tired now of fighting against my own self . If i follow strictly then i start seeing the bad around myself . I remember you said people in Syria have more challenges than me ..but I am not in Syria.

HpS - In India? You know that there are people in India with worse situations than you. Some worse, some better. Start from where you are, no?

I have few questions that i humbly ask you . Kindly help me understand .

1) Why did you initiate me knowing that i am a complete failure in spiritual life ? ( i had never hidden anything from you )

HpS - As far as I knew you were following the standard for first and second initiation given by Srila Prabhupada when you were initiated into that level of class. You certainly seemed sincere then and you even seem sincere now. Ajamil tried to avoid fall down but still he did and then after a long time he achieved SUCCESS, maybe quick, may be slow, may be 4-hours and 15-minutes but it is our own individual path so here we go!

2) why after chanting and everything still i am not able to control my senses and mind permanently .When will the higher taste arise?

HpS - Again. It is very individual. Look at how many stories there are in the SB! Many different paths. As long as you are chanting you are making progress. Of course, the more you can introduce other techniques, eg. mangala arati.... the more effect the Chan Ting, Ting, Ting will have.

3) Why cannot i be a nice person ? What's wrong with me ? I am always critical of everyone and myself .Even after trying very hard i cannot seem to control my critical mind.

HpS - Maybe because you are perfectionist? I just don't know in detail.... but there is a reason .... and "kalau dose nidhe rajan...." harit kirtan destroys even the Karma of the biggest monsters. maybe you are Jaya or Vijaya taken birth in Iskcon. Maybe one day you will meet Jaya! Some enchanted evening you will see him standing.... Ha! Ha! Ha! (Twirl your mustache).... Chant. Chant. Chant and be happy. May not be perfect, but it can be progressive. Are you a psychiatrist yet?

4) what did you consider before initiating me?

HpS - Our conversations and recommendations of others whom I trust.

Other than this i am fine . Currently again in shillong (choose to study anatomy - was getting ENT but with my health and rest of the things...it would be too much to do so much hectic work ..anatomy is more relaxed. No night duty)

HpS - Very nice. I hope you find some nice friends with whom you can find a sane niche in ISKCON. I have seen such people.

My parents are also OK. (my mother also wanted me to ask you this questions .)

Sister is slowly becoming vegetarian .She plans to shift to USA for her residency . Planning to give USMLE step 1 next year .


Thank you for your austerities for our sake . I am sorry that you suffer because of me .Thank you for the kindness .

Rturaj Krsna das

Shillong , meghalaya.

HpS - Reading any exciting stories???? Got any nice places you like to go? Any sane friends??? Of course, in the material world we would have to ask, "Any half way sane friends."

Hare krishna Gurudev TlgaSP pamhr

Es grato para mi escribirle nuevamente.. seguimos con nuestro sadhana diario atendiendo a Nitay Sacidulal y Salagran Varaha sila a través de la sucesión discipular, a través de su misericordia. Desde mangal aratik hasta krishna book.

Vida familiar en buen entendimiento q somos sirvientes de krishna y la unión es para practicar cada dia conciencia de krishna, cantando, cocinando, adorando, sirviendo de muchas maneras, distribuimos lo q krishna nos da a los familiares y amigos, Radharani continua sus estudios en la universidad.

No tengo mucho reporte sobre mi ayuda en la mudanza de la parafernalia de Jaganatha Baladev Subadra a su nuevo hogar, solo q el nuevo templo es una casa muy grande, es mi deseo puedan ser atendidos de manera correcta, aunq me pidieron ayuda en comprarle flores todas las semanas aun no eh respondido si hare o no el seva...

Festivales de Janmastami y Aparicion de Srila Prabhupada pude otorgar mi servico nuevamente como pujary en el templo del entendimiento Chosica mandir, fue muy lindo, para Radhastami celebraremos en casa de prabhu Jagadish con sus deidades Radha Vinod Vihari.

Tengo invitacion nuevamente de ir a la India en 2020 y continuar con mi seva de teatro alado de Bhakti Marga swami y todo el team, estoy muy feliz por ello esperamos esta vez pueda ir mi esposa conmigo y tener esa maravillosa experiencia de estar juntos en el santo dhan, Vrindavan..hari bol..!

Tengo una pregunta q es ser un pandit y un thakura?

HpS - Pandita means scholar and Thakura has different meanings but we use it as a very nice title of respect. I think when your disciples become Prabhupada's, you become Thakura.

Hari Bolo! Hari Bolo!!! Hop you get more and more on the inside of this life! Yes only weeks until we are in Lima again.

Lo esperamos en Lima en Octubre para ser utiles en su sankirtan Gurudev.

Su sirviente
